Hello,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic forum.
Diprospan nasal spray contains betamethasone a corticosteroid which can be used for severe cases of alergic rhinitis.
Corticosteroid nasal sprays such as Nasonex and Rhinocort can also be used to relieve the symptoms of sinusitis, hay fever, allergic rhinitis and non-allergic (perennial) rhinitis.
However,they can cause side effects such as headaches, nausea and nose bleeds.Hence their use should be limited and only on prescription.
For symptomatic relief you can alternatively use anti histaminics either nasal sprays or oral pills available freely on prescription and over the counter.
In Australia sprays like Telnase (Triamcinolone acetonide) and livostin (Levocabastine hydrochloride) are the popular products on the market and are available over-the-counter.
Please understand that allergy is best prevented than treated.So do consult an allergist for long term relief rather than repeated selfmedications providing temporary relief.
Wishing you good health,
Regards,
